The Strategy Selection Matrix--A Guide for Individualizing Instruction.
The Strategy Selection Matrix (SSM) is offered as a means for matching teaching technique to the individual special needs student. Three steps in the SSM are described: development of an intra-individual learning style profile based on 14 learning components; review of the individualizing teaching strategies (such as tutoring, continuous progress curriculum, and learning stations) to arrive at a range of options; and matching the profile with the column of teaching strategies to discover the most appropriate strategies for each student. Alternative uses for the SSM include analysis of needed material adaptations to accommodate learning styles. Sample profiles charting performance on social, cognitive, sensory-motor, and emotional development are included, as is a sample SSM matching strategy with component. (CL)
